Marriage is a religious act.

So it's the **idea** of your god we are "killing".
And?
It's working-- already your kind cannot burn witches nor impale heretics.
Soon, your god will be as dead as ..
..... Thor.
My "kind" never burned witches. My "kind" knows that witchcraft is bullshit and doesn't exist. My "kind" loves their neighbor, wannabe witch or not.

How is it that your kind is killing a nonexistent god?

That's a feat in and of itself.....

Christians burned about a bathtub full of witches.

Atheist mass murderers top that on their coffee break.

The causal link between mass murder and atheism is about 180,000 times higher than that of Christianity.

It might not be a good idea to talk about rods and shafts to the Topix Atheists.

They might take it wrong and think you're flirting.

Why bother asking a question if you're just rant on and on like you already know the answer?
I believe that God created AIDS.
God doesn't transmit it, people do.
Stupid, immoral people.
Now, revise your post.
You do? And sexuality and lust? Wow what a great god you worship, not content with genocide and child murder he goes and invents killer diseases and the ability to transmit them too.

How about childhood leukaemia and the various cancers where the stupid immoral people who contract them have no fooking say in the matter? Are they your gods inventions too?

It is really no wonder that you are such a nasty a$$hole.

Why should I revise my post? Because you dictate it? Nope, life does not work like that.

And you have not answered my second or third questions

I know.

But I don't play this Topix Atheist! game of "well some Christians did it for a time so all Christians are to blame for it!"

That's bullshit.

Accusing me of burning witches is as asinine as accusing me of owning slaves or landing on the moon. Just because *some* white folks did it doesn't mean you denigrate the entire race.

And just because *some* Christians did it doesn't mean you denigrate the entire religion.

*My* kind is not the same as *their* kind.

Wow, you're easily swayed.

Some random dude on a free thread says that God created AIDS and <<<poof>>> you believe it and run with it.

Is that how the rational freethinker works?

Leukemia and cancer are creations of man. We've done it to ourselves by not stating pure, eating pure and acting pure.

And who do you believe created AIDS?
Honey you can’t just claim your god created the good bits and expect everyone you don’t like to create the bad bits, that puts them on an equal creation footing to your god and I am sure you would not want that. For your god to have been responsible for creation then he must by definition have created AIDS, childhood leukaemia, cancer, malaria and so much more.
How do you know that you will never contract AIDS through your own choice. I know you are great at giving out Americanisms so please accept this bit of British wisdom in return – A standing prick has no conscience
Why do godbots always assume that threats of hell are going to effect anyone other then there own conscience?

Thank you and I think you should listen to your electronic music professors a little more. You have much to learn. A good educator should not be close minded.
In popular music, a synth lead is generally used for playing the main melody of a song, but it is also often used for creating rhythmic or bass effects. Although most commonly heard in electronic dance music, synth leads have been used extensively in hip-hop since the 1980s and rock songs since the 1970s.
Most modern music relies heavily on the synth lead to provide a musical hook to sustain the listener's interest throughout an entire song.
A synth pad is a sustained chord or tone generated by a synthesizer, often employed for background harmony and atmosphere in much the same fashion that a string section is often used in acoustic music.
Typically, a synth pad plays many whole or half notes, sometimes holding the same note while a lead voice sings or plays an entire musical phrase.
Often, the sounds used for synth pads have a vaguely organ, string, or vocal timbre.
Much popular music in the 1980s employed synth pads, this being the time of polyphonic synthesizers, as did the then-new styles of smooth jazz and New Age music.
German band 'tangerine dream' scored the movie thief with James Caan all electronic 40+ yrs ago!
You remain a fossil!
Wake up and listen to the future professor

I guess it shouldn't be too surprising to find that one who vociferously defends sampling other musician's work to "create" his own would also shamelessly plagiarize Wikipedia without proper attribution.

The "fossil" knows and reveres the creation of music. You seem to be enamored by Ctrl-C / Ctrl-V.

Nope.
The sexually immoral transmit the disease to their unborn babies.
Why?
Because they're sexually immoral.
Combatting AIDS is very simple; don't f_ck everything you see and you won't get it.
But if AIDS is God's punishment, then it follows that God is punishing babies as well. And wives that are infected by their husbands. Or those infected by blood transfusions. Or dental workers. Or any of a number of other methods.

Your God seems to have terrible aim if his intent was to punish the sexually immoral. It seems to infect anyone and everyone it comes in contact with...just like any other infectious disease.

Information being accurate is not dependent on who reads it.
It is either accurate or it is inaccurate.
The point IANS is making is that you don't care whether the information is accurate or not. You do no fact checking to confirm it. If the site says it is Christian, you accept it hook, line and sinker...no questions asked.

This is not how a skeptic takes in new information.

Christians are the most gullible people I know. If someone says "I'm a Christian" their word is automatically taken as fact.
